Art Description

Painting: Oil, velum on Wood.

This circular painting is oil on acrylic velum, mounted on wooden panel.

My new work, circular in format, is considering natural - geometric- crystallization, as represented by ice. Suggesting an ambiguity between human intervention and natural process, the paintings depict a place in the natural world where the geometric is not man-made. Ice, in current times is indicative of the environmental crisis, of the shrinking arctic, but also a metaphor for winter and for slowing down. The 'arctic circles' are purposing a naturally occurring wisdom within the landscape. Suggesting an ambiguity that, however unlikely, given time, could self-clarify. The relationships between reality and fiction, natural and constructed, between waking and dreaming – are mischievously questioned but not defined. My art is about the collective experience and lightheartedly suggests that contemporary landscape may be a direct depiction of our subconscious identity.
